About Hr.Richter

I'm in the export import business and travel extensively during the year. My mother is helping me with the rentals. As you can see on my profile having great fun finding insider restaurants and unique wine producers, as I am also a certified Sommelier, before somebody else does. Enjoy extensive cycling rides in the surrounding areas which are just spectacular.

Hr.Richter purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Hr.Richter chose Vienna

I stayed in this Apartment in the late 90´ies, as a friend of mine owned it, and I fell in love. It is one of the nicest houses in the district with Elevator and gated entrance.

We purchased it 2009 as he moved to Hungary.

The apartment has the charm of the turn of the century with the original doors and

old original Banquet floor with all the modern amenities.

.

Very quite and secluded location, but still only minutes away to public transport, the new railway station "Hauptbahnhof" the largest in Europe is in walking distance, with direct trains to the Vienna international airport, only 6 minutes to St Stephen's Cathedral, the center of Vienna with the subway.

Easy Access to the highway A2, public unlimited parking in front of house, It is very central and has a vast amount of parks and recreation areas.

Also there is daily a large Farmers' market, except Sundays with the freshest produce, very reasonable priced, approx. 50% less than in the surrounding supermarkets.

I love the idea of hopping on the subway and being in the center in less than 5 minutes but just as great to leave the touristy area behind.

Perfectly marked cycling path brings you in 10 minutes to the center and further on to the Blue Danube Island and for the more experienced bicyclers up to Bratislava.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is very central and has its charm of the Imperial time. The architecture is turn of the century and Art Deco; a must see to appreciate!

2 minutes or 15 min walk to the new "Hauptbahnhof", (Largest Railwaystation in Europe)

6 minutes to St. Stephen Cathedral

4 Minutes per subway to St. Charles Cathedral

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Martin, We very much enjoyed our holiday in Vienna while staying

in your comfortable and spacious appartment. Public transport is

outstanding and it is very easy to travel anywhere from Reumannplatz. The

numerous guide books left in the appartment helped us organise our time and

understand Austria better. We were very lucky with the weather and thus

were able to explore lovely places outside Vienna. The Wifi connection was

also appreciated.



On our last day (17/6) the 'chimney sweep' came to check the boiler in the

kitchen; he gave us a small green document for the owner - we left this

with an explanatory note for Katarina on the table.

We would certainly recommend your appartment.

Marguerite and John

Our Home away from Home..charming apt close to everything

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I became immersed in the charm and character of all Vienna with our stay at this apartment. It made our late night arrival so easy to have a ride service pick us up at the Vienna airport. Thanks Martin! The flat's closeness to the end of the U1 underground made getting around Vienna easy. And to get to pass by Tichy's Ice Cream every day made our stomach's happy! We stayed two weeks in this charming apartment. It was so nice to have a kitchen and make coffee and sit by the open window and hear the church bells at 7 am.. They also ring at 7 pm Monday - Friday and more on the weekends. It added to the magic of our stay. The king size bed was very comfortable and welcome after the amount of walking you do as a tourist in Vienna. Having a clothes washing machine helped reduce the amount of clothes needed for our travels. There are several grocery stores as well as an open air market within easy walking distance. Although it was warm during our stay, the windows stayed open and the ceiling fan over the bed made our sleep comfortable. Stay here and enjoy Vienna!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we walk through the gates of this property, we say "it's great to be home!" This trip we arrived by plane and were met at the airport by Martin's pre-arranged driver -- such luxury! Other times have been by train into the beautiful new Hauptbahnhof, only a few stops from the apartment. Believe what other reviewers have said about comfort, charm, excellent transportation ...

When we plan a trip to include Vienna, our first question is "when will the apartment be available?" and we build the trip around that.

Warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Long thin second-floor apartment with kitchen at one end, bedroom at the other. Immense double bed with two single duvets. Kitchen equipment a bit haphazard but functional. Central heating powerful and controllable, just what's needed in January. TV the size of a tabletop, hundreds of stations. WIFI works fine. Free taxi pickup at the airport worked perfectly, then we were met at the door and shown round the flat by Alexander, everything very relaxed and easy. Location is very close to Reumannplatz U-bahn station which we used every day. Recommend getting a Wochenkarte or other multi-trip ticket rather than buying individual tickets every time, cheaper and easier. You can buy them online before you go, and print them out yourself. Food shopping at Billa on Favoritenstrasse, 5 minutes away. Cafe Walther, on the right hand side at the other end of Reumannplatz, is good for a quiet beer. Only complaint is nothing to do with the apartment or the owner: the Homeaway web site is poor, not at all easy to use. We had trouble with it asking us to pay twice, for two bookings for the same week(?). That took a bit of sorting out.

Perfect Vienna location!

  • 4 of 5

After an obvious bit of mis-communication and a 2 hr wait in frigid weather, the caretaker came and let us into the apartment. The phone number we had been given was apparently not the correct one and no one was in the apt when we arrived. A bit more trouble with the internet and tv but both were made right the next day by Alexander.

The location of this apt is absolutely perfect to the subway and 10 minutes to the centre of the old city. Very comfortable and nicely furnished with everything we needed. The bed is very comfortable. Our only suggestion would be for clearer and corrected instructions for the internet and TV. Otherwise, a very comfortable stay and we thoroughly enjoyed our Vienna vacation.

Great place for visiting the great city

  • 5 of 5

The Vienna apartment of Herr Richter is indeed a great location, accommodation and also value for seeing the many delights of Vienna. While the owner is not located in the city, he was very prompt and helpful in e-mail for answering any inquiries we may have had. The apartment is well equipped for comfort, and self-catering. It was warm during the few days of cool rain we experienced. The kitchen was adequate with microwave, and newer type stove/oven, lighting and various needs such as pots and pans, coffee makers and flatware. All was very clean. The rooms were light and nicely decorated. The furniture is of good quality and clean. The clothes washer worked well and the TV is a full size flat screen with many satellite channels. The neighborhood was quiet at night and the apartment building seemed safe, well maintained and several neighbors we met were welcoming. There are numerous daytime restaurants, take-aways and at least one bank in the neighborhood.

The location is so close to the underground (subway) that access to almost any part of the city is quick, easy and affordable. The local grocery chain near the big church had an excellent stock of fruit, vegetable, breads, meat and fish. Also, a deli type section. Good selections of wine also were available. This was a very comfortable week stay for us. We would stay again at Herr Richter's apartment.

It is important to understand that the parking is free but it is first come first serve type street parking. It seems safe and the street is a quiet residential one, but there were a couple times that we had to circle the blocks a few times before finding a vacancy for the car. Also, upon arrival it is necessary to communicate as accurately as possible one's arrival time to the employee designated for the apartment so that she may coordinate with you for the time to meet you at the apartment with keys and essential information. Her helpfulness and friendliness was also greatly appreciated.

Owner's Response: Dear Doug And Rosalie Thank you so much for your report, yes parking space is first comes first serve which is still very unique as it is unlimited, as the rest of vienna parking is already very limited to 2 hours. We do have one public car garage 5 minutes away available if needed. We appreciate you staying with us and safe travels! Martin

The large, white, cubic Secession building was designed by the architect Joseph Maria Olbrich in 1897 as the manifesto of the Secessionist movement (see p25) and the exhibition hall opened in October 1898. Most of the original interior was looted during World War II and the building was left in a desolate state until the passion for Viennese Art Nouveau was rediscovered in the 1970s and the pavilion rescued from decay. Today it is one of the most treasured examples of a particularly Viennese artistic period.

The Wotruba Church, Liesing (Tram 60 to the Maurer Lange Gasse stop). A beautiful cubist church on the top of a hill overlooking the woods. There is also an open air planetarium next to the church.

Various, but usually Mid Feb-mid Nov 8AM-dusk. A beautiful natural reserve used to be the Emperor's private hunting wood with the fancy Hermesvilla, the favorite mansion of Empress Sisi. In summer you can see wild pigs, deer, and many Viennese families. Has several 2-10 km hiking trails, as well as a variety of wildlife. You can see the animals get fed at 2PM every day. Ask any park attendant where the location is.
